SPRING VALLEY - Political signs possibly implying that Rockland’s Hasidic community is reliant on welfare have been found in the county.

On the signs, Rockland Legislator Aron Wieder is pictured along with the words, "David Carlucci for Medicaid. Working together, other people can carry us." The signs have been spotted throughout the county, but no one has so far taken credit.

State Sen. Carlucci is running for re-election against Republican Tom DePrisco, who denies any involvement with the signs.

News 12 reached out to Wieder, but he was unavailable for comment Tuesday. He is looking to unseat Karl Brabenec in the 97th Assembly District race. Brabenec also denies any involvement.
